Heather CraigCalBRE# 02015511
As a contractor’s daughter, growing up in San Diego, Heather had an early fascination with the real estate business and loved learning how homes were designed, constructed and finally built.
Her passion for photography as a college student, enabled her to capture the beauty of San Diego and enhance her knowledge of the city. She completed programs in basic/intermediate black and white photography, digital photography and journalism as a student at San Diego City College, which further enhanced her skill in marketing her client’s homes.
She then completed programs at San Diego Mesa College in political science, civilization and other general classes, however always drawn to homes, an Architecture History course became the beginning of a new 4-year field of study for Heather. She was enthralled with architecture and immersed herself in AutoCAD, drafting, graphic arts and studio classes.
With her construction knowledge being a background for design, photography being her platform to expose the details and her love of Architecture and passion for homes, it is easy to see why Heather chose a career in real estate.
